The Latest Headlines You Need To Know

  • A teen girl helped a blind, deaf man communicate on a recent Alaska Airlines flight, according to KIRO. Dianne McGinness with Alaska Airlines shared the heartwarming story after a passenger on the flight wrote a post this week about the interaction that was shared over 400,000 times. The passenger, Lynette Scribner, was traveling on the same flight as the teen and man, and was moved to write a post on the touching encounter.  >> Read more trending news  Scribner said the man, Tim Cook, was traveling home to Portland after visiting his sister. Cook lives at Portland's Brookdale Senior Living.  When passengers of the flight realized Cook was blind and deaf, many helped ensure he was comfortable. A man sitting next to Cook gave him the aisle seat and helped with little tasks like opening his coffee creamer and pouring it into his coffee, Scribner shared. A flight attendant made an announcement asking if a passenger on board knew American Sign Language. Fifteen-year-old Clara Daly, who has studied ASL for the last year, rang her call button. When Daly learned the man could communicate only if someone signed into his hand, she immediately went to help. Cook asked Daly questions and she patiently sign-spelled answers into his hand. Scribner said Daly learned ASL because she has dyslexia, and it was the easiest foreign language for her to learn. “Clara was amazing,” an Alaska Airlines flight attendant said in the news release. “You could tell Tim was very excited to have someone he could speak to -- and she was such an angel.” “When (Cook) asked (Daly) if she was pretty, she blushed and laughed as the seat mate, who had learned a few signs, communicated an enthusiastic yes to Tim,” Scribner shared. “I don't know when I've ever seen so many people rally to take care of another human being. All of us in the immediate rows were laughing and smiling and enjoying his obvious delight in having someone to talk to.” After the flight, McGinness said Cook met a service provider from Brookdale Senior Living at the gate. Cook said the flight was the best trip he's ever taken. Daly told her mom she thought the encounter was 'meant to be,' since her original flight was canceled and she was redirected to Cook's flight. On Thursday, Scribner added a note on her beloved post: “We are all starving for good news and this was just what we needed.”
  • Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Wueizman Leal, 41, after he allegedly shot and killed his 59-year-old mother Friday evening during an argument at a home near Winter Garden, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said. Deputies were called shortly after 8:45 p.m. to a fight at a home on Bridgewater Crossings Boulevard near Ficquette and Winter Garden Vineland roads, Orange County Deputy Ingrid Tejada-Monforte said. When deputies arrived at the home, they heard people arguing followed by gunfire, Tejada-Monforte said. Investigators said they apprehended Leal while he was trying to leave the home. His mother, Tania Perez Creek , was shot multiple times, deputies said. She was taken to Florida Hospital Winter Garden where she later died from her injuries, deputies said. The man's stepfather was also at the home when the woman was shot, Tejada-Monforte said. The shooting remains under investigation.
  • Anthony Bourdain’s mother revealed that while she was “never really a fan” of her son’s tattoos, she plans to get one in his memory. Gladys Bourdain told the New York Times that she plans to get “Tony” tattooed in small letters on the inside of her wrist some time next week, and use his tattoo artist. >> Read more trending news  The 61-year-old chef and host of CNN’s “Parts Unknown” was found dead on June 8 in a hotel room in France. Investigators say he hanged himself. On Friday, a prosecutor said Bourdain had no traces of drugs or alcohol in his system.  The famous chef had several tattoos, getting his first at 44. Bourdain told Maxim in August 2017 that each tattoo marks a significant moment in his life. “I don't overly place importance on them, but [tattoos] do commemorate in a way that photographs can't,” Bourdain said. “I stopped taking photographs a long time ago when I travel. There's this realization that the lens is inadequate to capture the moment, so maybe I'm just looking to mark time in another way that's very personal.” Gladys Bourdain said that a private ceremony will be held soon, adding, “He would want as little fuss as possible.” A Bourdain family spokesperson told the BBC the family has no plans for a public memorial at this time.
  • White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she and seven members of her family were kicked out of The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia on Friday night. TMZ first reported that the restaurant’s owner kicked out Sanders and her family out of “moral conviction.”  >> Read more trending news  A waiter posted on Facebook that Sanders was in the restaurant for “a total of two minutes” before being asked to leave. Sanders confirmed the incident on Twitter. “Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left,” Sanders tweeted Saturday. “Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.” Sanders’ father, former Gov. Mike Huckabee, tweeted his support, saying it was an act of “bigotry.” The Red Hen’s Facebook and Yelp pages were bombarded with reviews from people from both sides. While some praised the restaurant, many others said the owner was being “intolerant.” This comes after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen bolted from a Washington, D.C. Mexican restaurant after protesters confronted her at her table -- with the blessing of the manager.
  • Police in Pittsburgh are searching for the driver of a dark sedan who drove through a crowd of protesters on Friday night.  Officials told WPXI no one was hurt.  This happened during the third straight night of protests related to the police shooting death of Antwon Rose, 17, who was killed during a traffic stop earlier in the week. >>Read: Protesters gather in Pittsburgh for third straight night The car plowed into the crowd near PNC Park, where fans were leaving a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game. >>Read: LIVE UPDATES: Car drives through crowd of protesters at PNC Park One person at the scene Friday night tweeted, “Someone tried to drive through us, police responded in riot gear.” Allegheny County police officials said that Rose was a passenger in a vehicle stopped in East Pittsburgh Tuesday night, because it fit the description of a car seen fleeing the area of a shooting in the nearby borough of North Braddock.  As an officer handcuffed the driver of the car, which investigators said had bullet damage to the back window, Rose and a second passenger got out of the car and ran.  Rose, who police officials said was shot three times, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.  Police are now investigating reports that Rose may have fired a weapon during a drive-by shooting before his death, and he had gun powder residue on his hands. In a statement to WPXI, Coleman McDonough, Allegheny County Police superintendent, stated that those claims are “false.” “While ACPD does have a video showing the North Braddock incident, that video does NOT show Antwon Rose firing a gun. The information about gunshot residue is also false. Crime Lab reports are still pending and have not yet been issued,” McDonough said. The East Pittsburgh police officer who fatally shot Rose has been identified as Michael Rosfeld. >>Read: Officer was sworn in hours before killing unarmed teen, mayor says He was sworn into the department just hours before the shooting, but has worked for several police forces, including the University of Pittsburgh. No arrests have been made and investigations are ongoing.
